Global Kitchen: A Cookbook of Vegetarian Favorites from The Expanding Light Retreat

Create Healthy, Flavorful Meals with an International Flair

The delicious, easy-to-prepare recipes in Global Kitchen are inspired by many of the world's most enjoyed culinary cultures-Italian, Thai, Indian, and Chinese, among others. Tried and true favorites, they have been served for many years, to many thousands of guests, at The Expanding Light yoga and meditation retreat, known for its great-tasting, healthful, vegetarian cuisine.

These guests have repeatedly urged The Expanding Light to create a cookbook that will enable them to prepare this same wonderful food at home. Now you, too, can experience the pleasure of cooking and eating exceptional meals. Global Kitchen offers:


  • Guidelines for making tasty, low-fat, meals

  • Delicious dishes that are naturally satisfying

  • Easy-to-find ingredients for quick shopping

  • Uncomplicated recipes that bring out the natural flavor of foods


Diksha McCord was the head chef at The Expanding Light retreat for seven years, where she now teaches vegetarian cooking classes. She learned Kosher and vegetarian cooking while growing up in Israel, studied Japanese cooking while living in Kyoto, Japan, and learned Ayurvedic and Indian cooking from premier California chefs. (regular price: $14.95)
